I have 3 marriage records for 2 sons of Samuel and Elizabeth Thorne, though they spelled it Thrown - no matter. Also a marriage of Elizabeth Thrown to my 3 g grandfather, Lawrence Alton (name was Alltimes in Ireland). He had been previously married to an Elizabeth who he married in County Limerick, Ireland. They had children: Christopher, Daniel, Michael, Joseph, Richard, Valentine, Samuel and Phoebe Ann. The first 6 were born in Limerick. All settled in Hartford, Washington Co., WI. Lawrence's first wife, Elizabeth, died 4 Apr 1853 in Hartford. We then find him marrying Elizabeth THROWN in Merton, Wauseka Co., WI (next to Washington Co., WI) 14 Sep
1853. Neither of their parents were listed. James Donelly, same person who married Abraham and George Throne, married them. Lawrence Alton died in Hartford in 10 Dec 1856. What happened to Elizabeth Throne Alton? There are no in tact newspapers for Hartford, Washington Co., WI for the years that she and Lawrence died, and no death certificates. I called and spoke with the Lisbon, Waukesha Co., WI librarian and she sent me typed copies of marriage records of Abraham and George W (or H) Thrown. Parents on each were Samuel Thrown and Elizabeth Thrown. Both were farmers residing in Merton,Waukesha Co. Abraham born in America, George born in Erie Co., PA. Abraham md. Lydia Cross, dau. of Able Cross. N/A in place for Lydia's mother's name. Abraham md. 14 Oct 1853 in Merton, WI. George md. Mary Naun 6 Jul 1854. Her parents Henry and Mary Naun. Abraham mar. Vol. 3, number 13 and George Vol. 3, number 28 Waukesha marriages. I could send you the typed copies of these marriages and origional of Lawrence Alton and Elizabeth Throne or you could look for them in FHL or some Wisconsin library that would have origionals.
Alos, they sent me a typed copy of the marriage of Samuel Alton, of Hartford, Washington Co., son of Lawrence Alton, though no parents given. He md. Elizabeth Payne, no parents given, on 31 Dec 1858 in Lisbon, Waukesha Co., WI. Marriage performed by Elisha Pearl, who resided in Lisbon. Does anyone know any more about Elizabeth Payne and Samuel Alton? There is an Elizabeth Alton buried in Hartford, Washington Co. who I believe was Elizabeth Payne. She was B. abt. 1834 and died 30 Oct 1868. The 1870 Washington Co. census lists Samuel with his new wife and daughter, Eugenie, age 9. There are no more records about Eugenie, probably daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth Throne. Could some of Throne family adopted her?
I hope we can exchange information on these families.
